Making peace with gravity: realizing human potential through Rolf Structural Integration

BY SHARI HEFTEL
@ VOL 14 ON MAR 06, 2018

Shari Heftel presents about Gravity: that silent, ever present force that constantly pulls us to the ground, is something that most people are aware of, but only peripherally. We all know that if we drop something it will fall to the earth. What most people are not aware of is how gravity is affecting our bodies for good or for bad. How we stand, sit, each step we take, each movement we make, is done with the force of gravity pushing down. When human bodies are misaligned and out of balance, gravity aggravates that condition pushing us further off balance. Bodies that are off balance are constantly fighting with gravity, working harder, struggling to stay upright and fully functioning. Chronic pain, fatigue, emotional distress, and disease in the body can all stem from the misalignment in our bodies. Ida Pauline Rolf, founder of Rolf Structural Integration, also known as Rolfing, believed that when bodies get working appropriately, gravity can flow through and healing can occur. When our bodies are aligned, balanced, organized, and integrated we become more effective human beings, leaving struggle behind allowing human potential and creativity to blossom.
